  • LETTER: Couple bids farewell to Spencer County

    Back in the fall of 1993 we were looking for a place to build our dream house. Lucky for us, we discovered Spencer County.
    We first fell in love with the beauty of Spencer County and soon after discovered the people who call Taylorsville home are even more delightful than the natural resources. From the start, we were warmly welcomed at every retail establishment, given much-needed advice on services, and formed friendships that will last for years.

  • LETTER: Christian rally at capitol a 'refreshing' day

    There were standing-room-only crowds in the House and Senate chambers Tuesday as various Christian legislators spoke up about their faith in Jesus and how this faith effects their decisions.
    Then there was a gathering in the rotunda where several ministers spoke and the songs “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America” were sung. The weather was absolutely beautiful – our first “spring” day.

  • LETTER: Farm tag donations help support FFA

    As we get closer to April, it’s that time of year when many of us are renewing our farm license tags.   
    As many of you may not know,  individuals purchasing farm license plates in Kentucky may make a $10 donation to the state 4-H and FFA youth programs through the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. This donation is split evenly between Kentucky Proud, 4-H and FFA.
    Of the FFA portion, 50 percent stays with the State FFA Foundation and 50 percent goes to the local FFA chapter.

  • COLUMN: God won recent evolution debate

    Last week’s Bill Nye/Ken Ham debate over the viability of Creationism probably did not change any minds, but it may have opened some. For decades, the secularists have pushed the narrative that science and faith are like oil and water.

  • LETTER: No kudos to mayor, commission

    In regard to complaints made by the public about not being provided inside accommodations during executive sessions of the City of Taylorsville’s public meetings, there were several statements made by Mayor Don Pay, City Clerk Steve Biven and City Attorney Dudley Dale that were far from the truth.
    In the Feb. 13 Magnet article “AG says local government shouldn’t kick public to the curb,” Pay stated, “In eight years of being mayor, this has never come up.”

  • LETTER: Coal ash dangerous to environment; brine, plows sufficient in snow

    My name is Dave Barnes and I have called and went before the board and complained. Our county officials don’t want to hear it.
    Go online and you will find mountains of information on coal ash and you will see the bad far outweighs the good. The state does not use it. The federal government does not want to label it hazardous material, because they would then be responsible for billions in cleanup and health issues.
